A good teacher is like a candle - it consumes itself to light the way for others. --Author Unknown Teaching is not a lost art, but the regard for it is a lost tradition. -Jacques Barzun Good teachers are costly, but bad teachers cost more. --Bob Talbert The true teacher defends his pupils against his own personal influence. He inspires self-distrust. He guides their eyes from himself to the spirit that quickens him. He will have no disciple. --Amos Bronson Alcott Teaching is leaving a vestige of one self in the development of another. And surely the student is a bank where you can deposit your most precious treasures. --Eugene P. Bertin The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires. -William Arthur Ward A teacher's purpose is not to create students in his own image, but to develop students who can create their own image. -Author Unknown What the teacher is, is more important than what he teaches. --Karl Menningervv The dream begins with a teacher who believes in you, who tugs and pushes and leads you to the next plateau, sometimes poking you with a sharp stick called "truth." --Dan Rather In teaching you cannot see the fruit of a day's work. It is invisible and remains so, maybe for twenty years. --Jacques Barzun Teaching is the profession that teaches all the other professions. --Author Unknown The best teachers teach from the heart, not from the book. --Author Unknown "A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops." --Henry Brooks Adams "Teachers, I believe, are the most responsible and important members of society because their professional efforts affect the fate of the earth." --Helen Caldicott, author and peace activist Better than a thousand days of diligent study is one day with a great teacher." --Japanese proverb "The whole art of teaching is only the art of awakening the natural curiosity of young minds for the purpose of satisfying it afterwards." --Anatole France Those who educate children well are more to be honored than parents, for these only gave life, those the art of living well. -Aristotle A gifted teacher is as rare as a gifted doctor, and makes far less money --Author unknown

GOD MADE TEACHERS . . . Author Unknown God understood our thirst for knowledge, and our need to be led by someone wiser; He needed a heart of compassion, of encouragement, and patience; Someone who would accept the challenge regardless of the opposition; Someone who could see potential and believe in the best in others . . . So He made Teachers

There is no job more important than yours, no job anywhere else in the land. You are the keepers of the future; you hold the smallest of hands. Into your care you are trusted to nurture and care for the young, and for all of your everyday heroics, your talents and skills go unsung.

You wipe tears from the eyes of the injured. You rock babies brand new in your arms. You encourage the shy and unsure child. You make sure they are safe from all harm. You foster the bonds of friendships, letting no child go away mad. You respect and you honour their emotions. You give hugs to each child when they're sad.

You have more impact than does a professor, a child's mind is moulded by four; so whatever you lay on the table is whatever the child will explore.

Give each child the tools for adventure, let them be artists and writers and more; let them fly on the wind and dance on the stars

and build castles of sand on the shore.

It is true that you don't make much money and you don't get a whole lot of praise, but when one small child says "I love you", you're reminded of how this job pays.
